Thy are being developed for the treatment of children.

Dolutegravir, an HIV medication, will soon be sold in an easily dissolved, strawberry-flavoured tablet. They are designed for the treatment of children. HIV medication often does not taste too good and studies have suggested that the taste-factor is an important one when it comes to getting young ones to swallow medication. About 160 000 children are infected with HIV every year, making this medication a necessity in the treatment of the disease among children.
